–Session to include original research and strategies for engaging and retaining listeners–
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Edison Research, whose data is helping drive the expansion of radio to new platforms like podcasting and streaming media, will present exclusive research on driving audience engagement and leveraging audio trends at the Radio Show on Thursday, September 26, in Dallas. The 2019 Radio Show, produced by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) and the Radio Advertising Bureau (RAB), will be held September 24-26 at the Hilton Anatole.
The session titled “The Secret to Longer TSL” will feature a presentation by Edison Research Vice President Megan Lazovick focused on attracting and retaining listeners and best practices to optimize advertising. Lazovick will also provide exclusive analysis of audio listening trends and content preferences and offer insight on how radio can effectively compete with and embrace other platforms.
In her role, Lazovick’s observations on consumer attitudes and behavior have helped shape widely publicized and cited custom research studies, such as Edison’s Share of Speech as well as NPR and Edison Research’s Smart Audio Report. She is an experienced moderator in many forms of qualitative research and has presented internationally at a number of prominent media industry events.
While radio’s reach remains strong across all ages, the time spent listening to radio has fallen much faster among younger listeners than among older ones, according to Edison. Edison’s qualitative team conducted one-on-one interviews with young radio listeners to understand their attitudes about commercials, different audio platforms, interest in and engagement with radio programs and what they would like from radio.
“These interviews helped to inform a new national survey of radio listeners and quantify listener sentiments,” said Lazovick. “Our survey results have been eye-opening, and this presentation is something you won’t want to miss!”
Edison Research conducts survey research and provides strategic information to a broad array of clients, primarily through media research, election polling, consumer surveys, out-of-home research and podcast research. Well-known and widely used Edison reports include “The Infinite Dial®” and “Share of Ear.” Learn more at www.edisonresearch.com.
